Peter Kyprianou's Photo - Peter Kyprianou - International graphic & icon illustrator. UK

London-based illustrator Peter Kyprianou has a clear and graphic creative style, perfect for the icons, pictograms, infographics, line-based artworks and storyboards he expertly delivers for clients in retail, editorial, publishing and more. Using his experience and natural drawing ability, he hones each piece to his client’s needs, varying his approach to reflect the brands he’s working with.
Through his Greek Cypriot background Peter is influenced by Byzantine iconography, and he’s also inspired by the pictograms and icons drawn by the German modernist Gerd Arntz. Rembrandt, Hals, Vermeer and El Greco are among his favourite artists. He has an Illustration degree from University of the Arts London, Camberwell.

Approach

After researching a project, Peter usually does some sketching to play around with the balance of the composition and its positive and negative space. He then works in Photoshop and Illustrator, where he’ll experiment further with the structure and bring colour into play.

Styles

Peter’s digitally drawn icons, pictograms, infographics and technical illustrations are clean and clear, and he varies the style of the line work to meet the brief. When storyboarding, he works by hand, producing imagery with a more traditional feel. Either way, strong line work and flat colours are clear elements in his illustrations.

Client list

Peter has been commissioned by clients including PWC, Sainsbury’s, Runners World, BBC Gardeners’ World, Time, Oxford University Press, Proctor and Gamble, PWC, Unilever, Which? and more.

Been great working with Peter for one of our feature stories. We've made quite a lot of changes along the way but he didn't complain at all. The final artwork looks great and it was a quick turn around.

It was great working with Peter, the illustrations he did for the cover and the internal of the book look amazing. Very pleased with the outcome.

Peter instantly understood the very particular mood we were after, and he produced a series of brilliant illustrations that made the whole project sing. Each new batch of drawings that came through had us rubbing our hands with glee. I was absolutely delighted with his work and would wholeheartedly recommend him to anyone.

Peter is great to work with. He is a very talented artist that can take direction well and is able to work out any revisions needed. He has his own style, but is versatile, and can incorporate elements needed to accomplish the needs of the project. He works quickly and provides quality art. I hope to work with Peter again in the future.
